All over the world, restaurants are veganizing. Some take it one step at a time, veganizing a few dishes on their menu. Others go all out, quickly transforming their restaurant to be 100% vegan. However they choose to veganize, we believe its a step in the right direction for the restaurant industry and plant-based movement. (PS. If you need a little help with veganizing, just contact your local chapter of Veganizer!)
Here in Portland, Epif transitioned to a fully vegan restaurant after serving the Portland community for over a year as a vegetarian restaurant. As you would expect, vegans immediately flocked to the newly veganized Epif, and Instagram was quickly flooded with photos of their South-American inspired cuisine. Whenever a restaurant goes vegan, we're always curious to hear about the process and what goes on behind the scenes. Was your staff on board with the idea? How did regulars feel about the change? What advice do you have for other restaurateurs? And of course, what dishes should we order? We reached out to Epif's husband-wife team, Nicolle and Pepe, for the full story on how Epif went vegan!
